John Hickenlooper, former Governor of Colorado, announces that he will run for President in the 2020 election. There has been a long standing rumor that Hickenlooper is going to run, but he didn’t officially announce it until this past Monday.
Hickenlooper is a well known moderate liberal who states that he is running because he believes that the United States is facing a crisis. He is known for being able to work with Republicans, and he hopes to be able to cross party lines if he is elected.
Political strategists state that, although he may be able to get to moderates, it will be difficult for him to win the hearts of those who vote in the primaries, who tend to be swayed by those more extreme than him. In spite of his moderation, Hickenlooper does have the experience to prove he is capable of the job.
